ESC to publish first cardiovascular textbook

15.12.2005


Responding to a need among cardiologists for a practical textbook that brings together ESC Guidelines and best practice coupled with a strong clinical focus, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) will publish its first textbook in cardiovascular medicine early next year. Entitled, The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, the book will be published 13 January 2006 (1).



According to ESC President Michal Tendera, “Education is central to ESC activities and with the publication of The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, the ESC will have achieved a remarkable education project. Under the excellent editorial direction of John Camm, Tom Lüscher and Patrick Serruys, this authoritative learning resource brings together expertise from all over Europe. The textbook will be the benchmark general reference for cardiologists and trainees.”

The textbook follows the structure of the ESC Core Syllabus, which was published as a learning framework for the general cardiologist. The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine comprises 36 chapters with contributions from more than 140 internationally recognised experts. Each chapter is dedicated to a cardiovascular subspecialty and includes a summary as well as the latest advances and references supported by comprehensive diagrams and images. The textbook will be accompanied by an online version (2) with CME accreditation (3).

Educational Activities at the ESC

Education is central to the activities of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), which represents more than 45,000 cardiology professionals across Europe and the Mediterranean. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of the European population by reducing the impact of cardiovascular disease.

The ESC achieves this through a variety of scientific and educational activities including the coordination of: clinical practice guidelines; education courses and initiatives; pan-European surveys on specific disease areas; and publications, which now include The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine as well as a recent series of books based on subspecialties in cardiology.

Another important educational activity, the ESC Annual Congress is the largest medical meeting in Europe. The ESC also promotes cardiovascular disease prevention messages to the general public, most notably during its annual ‘For Your Heart’s Sake’ event, a fun yet educational event offering risk assessment and prevention advice, held in parallel to the Congress each year. Both the ESC Congress and ‘For Your Heart’s Sake’ take place in late August/early September each year in a European ‘Heart-Healthy City’. The ESC Congress 2006 will be held together with the World Heart Federation’s XVth World Congress of Cardiology 2006, to be held from 2-6 September in Barcelona, Spain.

The ESC comprises 2 Councils, 4 Associations, 23 Working Groups and 49 National Cardiac Societies. The ESC administrative headquarters are based at the European Heart House, Sophia Antipolis, France.

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
